The people on the right of the political spectrum kept saying that the big media outlets were bias against Senator McCain and pushed there agenda in favor of Senator Obama to be elected President of the United States

Well the Washington Post admits they were biased in there reporting, could this be a cover there ass statement, if everything goes wrong for President Obama?


The Post provided a lot of good campaign coverage, but readers have been consistently critical of the lack of probing issues coverage and what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right on both counts.

My assistant, Jean Hwang, and I have been examining Post coverage since Nov. 11 last year on issues, voters, fundraising, the candidates' backgrounds and horse-race stories on tactics, strategy and consultants. We also have looked at photos and Page 1 stories since Obama captured the nomination June 4. Numbers don't tell you everything, but they give you a sense of The Post's priorities.
 
The count was lopsided, with 1,295 horse-race stories and 594 issues stories. The Post was deficient in stories that reported more than the two candidates trading jabs; readers needed articles, going back to the primaries, comparing their positions with outside experts' views. There were no broad stories on energy or science policy, and there were few on religion issues.

Have you heard half of Iowa is flooded

And no one is blaming President Bush or FEMA, like the residents of New Orleans did

I would say a different mentality exists in Iowa (also known as) the Midwestern Work Ethic

Also the 2 tornado that struck Iowa
